Gifts to Give to Yourself

By | Franchise Business, Gutter Business Blog, Starting a Business

We all know the holiday season is about giving to others and expressing our thankfulness for our friends, family and opportunities. The majority of the final months of the year are spent shopping for the perfect gifts, opening your home to guests and spending time together. However, this holiday season, it’s time to give a few gifts to yourself. Here are a few to try:

  1. More time for things you love. During the holiday season, or any other time of year, you should be making time for your own hobbies and interests, instead of stressing about work in your free time. Give the gift of more time for things you love and live a happier, healthier life!
  2. A new challenge. If you are feeling bored in your career, or find that you have no more room to grow, it’s time to gift yourself with a new challenge. This can bring more excitement to your everyday life, and even motivate you to grow in other areas too!
  3. More support and financial freedom. It’s tough to succeed and feel secure in your career without support from others and a steady flow of business. This is the year to give yourself the gift of less stress by choosing opportunities that give you a bigger network of resources and a product that thrives year-round.

This wish list may seem unattainable, but these “gifts” are just a few of the benefits that GutterShutter dealers receive! With low startup costs, full training and support, access to a network of successful dealers and an award-winning product, becoming a GutterShutter dealer is the perfect gift to give yourself this holiday season. All the information you’ll need is available here, and you can call us at 877-667-4888 to get started!

GutterShutter Dealers Stay Busy, Year-Round

By | Gutter Business Blog, Starting a Business

Most companies see the natural ebb and flow of business as the weather changes, causing slower seasons with smaller revenue. For an independent, small business owner, this can be extremely stressful and lead to working extra hours to make up for off-season loss.

Seasonal business fluctuations are also one of the biggest reasons that entrepreneurs choose to become a GutterShutter dealer. GutterShutter dealers stay busy, year-round!

In the winter, homeowners dread heavy snow and ice-damming, which can cause damage to roofing and potentially lead to future problems. In the spring, heavy rain, thunderstorms and pollen mean that gutters need to be cleaned and ready to handle large amounts of water. Summer might seem like a calm season for gutter problems, but gutters become great homes for birds, bees and other pests, and will need to be checked to avoid them. And of course, fall is the worst season for gutters – the passing of hurricane season combined with temperature changes and falling leaves causes gutters to become clogged, quickly.

Gutters never take a break, and homeowners are always looking for simple solutions to make life easier when it comes to home upkeep. As a Gutter Shutter dealer, you’ll never have to worry about slow seasons, and selling our system can be as busy as you’d like it to be. This is why many of our dealers are new startups and investor-owners who get a quick return on their investment.

Whether you are creating a startup business, or adding a gutter line to your existing remodeling and replacement business, we know you’ll find the GutterShutter business model is very impressive.
